Primetime series halts Friday broadcast, to re-air episode

MANILA -- "Got to Believe" fans took to Twitter to vent their anger Friday night after the blockbuster primetime series failed to air the scheduled episode in its entirety due to technical difficulties.

The September 27 telecast of "Got to Believe," which was to feature Joaquin (Daniel Padilla) and Chichay's (Kathryn Bernardo) first day attending the same school, aired a full segment before reaching its first commercial gap.

The show failed to resume, however, with the commercial gap extending for about 30 minutes before leading in to "Muling Buksan ang Puso," the drama series that airs after "Got to Believe."

During the telecast of "Muling Buksan ang Puso," a programming advisory appeared on screen, announcing that the September 27 episode of "Got to Believe" will be aired in full on Monday, September 30.

The advisory read: "Dahil sa technical difficulties, sa Lunes na mapapanood ang buong episode ng 'Got to Believe.'"

On Twitter, the official account of the ABS-CBN program reiterated the advisory flashed on TV, and apologized for the interrupted telecast.

The tweet came a full hour after fans of the show expressed their disappointment on the micro-blogging site, which pushed the hashtags "GottoBelive" and "G2BFirstDayHigh" to the top trending topics locally, ranking No. 1 at different times.

Directed by Cathy Garcia-Molina, "Got to Believe" airs weeknights after "Juan dela Cruz" during ABS-CBN's Primetime Bida block.
